When you live in Mongolia you expect travel to be difficult. When you live in the United States, you expect travel to be easy. Trips to Costa Rica on a whim are simple as 1, 2, 3 with a Frontier’s card and the centrally located airport of Phoenix Sky Harbor. Then all of a sudden life throws out a deranged curve ball like 50 Cent at a baseball game and you find yourself back in the United States but just as landlocked as if you were still in Mongolia. All of a sudden, the Southwest Companion pass becomes useless as the state of your residence is one of the few places to embrace manifest low fare destiny.
TPOL has tried his best to keep his domicile a secret, believing that the winds of fortune will change, propelling him back into flight. But today, with the Moscow trip postponed yet again, it’s time to face the reality that my wings have been clipped. This year despite having 2,000,000+ points, I have had to postpone trips to:
- Detroit, Michigan
- Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
- Mexico City, Mexico
- Miami, Florida
- Los Angeles, California
- Reykjavík, Iceland
